New owner!!!

my first Aston Martin.. picked up this brand new vantage v8 GTS in manual, my other option was a slightly used Porsche C4S in PDK.. Since I got the car about a month ago, I had the car tinted all around including windshield ceramic.. Full front clear bra and rocker panels, Opti coat 5 year. next I plan to maybe getting wheels or powder coating the original ones black and upgrading the tires. I really don't like the way it rides on the tires now.. Some gripes are the information system, especially the radio controls. after you set the favorites, how do you use the controls on the steering wheel to scroll the favorites instead of scanning? I read the manual and the service advisor said we can't.. but that would be horrible if there is no fix.. any other tips ? tricks or recommendations feel free to let me know!!

Very cool GTS, were did you purchase it from? Good choice on the trans. And what color is the interior? I have a 2016 GT.

I was going to say looks like Newport Beach, mine started it's journey there


I haven't figured out my favorites or saved any stations at all, but by accident I was changing the ones already set, there's a switch on the outside of your radio / Bluetooth cluster, just like the switch to turn on the cruise control. Changes favorites up and down, I think.

You might want to consider clear bra on the rear wheel wells behind the doors.....you will also smell the clutch every so often until it breaks in, and until you get use to it.

I assume this is not normal? condensation in headlights? too bad I had the lights done with the clear bra? unless there is a way to fix the issue without changing the whole headlights?
